$500 Microgrants Offered To Uplift Manhattan Beach Neighborhoods

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — Sometimes it’s the little things that have the biggest impact. That’s why the Nextdoor Kind Foundation is offering $500 microgrants to 100 Los Angeles County residents with big ideas for changing their little corner of the world.

The idea is simple: Any individual with creative ideas and projects benefiting their Los Angeles County community can apply. The application period is open until March 29. The grant-winning initiatives will be ones that spark civic engagement and strengthen the community, said Devanshi Mehta, Nextdoor Finance Business Partner.

The goal, said Mehta, is “to focus on inspiring and empowering hyperlocal leaders to create impact in their communities, really, one neighborhood at a time.”

According to Mehta, examples of projects can include organizing a community walk or clean up, connecting the community through murals or other art projects, refurbishing parks or playscapes, purchasing equipment for youth sports programs or clubs, organizing neighborhood or community meals, starting a farmer’s market stand, and bringing groceries to neighbors and community members in need.

“We really want to take the time to back and empower so many leaders who are doing things in Los Angeles,” Mehta said.

In many cases, people are already performing these community services, in their daily lives, but the $500 grant could help them scale up or inspire others to get involved, she added.

The grants are designed for individuals, but the applicants can take on projects for the benefit of community groups or nonprofits, said Mehta. One such example would be buying pickleball equipment for the Boys and Girls Club, she added.

“Local leaders understand their neighborhoods best, and the actions that will have the greatest impact for their communities,” said Shireen Santosham, Executive Director, Nextdoor Kind Foundation. “These microgrants will provide civically-engaged Angelenos the opportunity to advance their work and ideas and build connection and kindness in their neighborhoods.”

According to the Nextdoor Kind Foundation, the applications will be judged on how well their initiatives illustrate community impact, foster community collaboration, include measurable outcomes, and help uplift under-resourced communities. The grant review process will take place in April.

Los Angeles County residents can apply for the microgrant here.

It’s the second year in a row that the foundation has given out grants to strengthen communities. In 2023, the Nextdoor Kind Foundation teamed up with the NAACP and Hello Alice to distribute $200,000 to US small businesses owned by individuals of color as part of the Keep It Local Business Grant Program.

Manhattan Beach Now Has Two Official Flowers

Following a discussion that was half-serious, half "I can't believe we're spending time on this," the Manhattan Beach City Council on Tuesday night approved the camellia as the city's second official flower.

The camellia now joins the beach primrose in a place of honor in the city's official records.

Specifically, the council voted to keep the beach primrose as the "official native wildflower," while the camellia would be designated the "official historic flower and shrub" of Manhattan Beach.

The motion was approved on a 4-0-1 vote, with Mayor Richard Montgomery abstaining in part over frustration with the dialogue and the amount of time spent on the issue.

Camellia History in Manhattan Beach

The move to give the camellia official city status took shape in the wake of new awareness about the history of the camellia in Manhattan Beach.

Camellia grower and horticultural pioneer Francis M. Uyematsu was a successful Japanese businessman and nursery owner who grew prized camellias and cherry trees on a 120-acre property in Manhattan Beach. During World War II, the Uyematsu family was forced to relocate to the Manzanar detention center, and Uyematsu had to sell off most of his land to sustain his business. After the war, with his business far below pre-war levels, Uyematsu sold the last 40 acres of his Manhattan Beach property to the Redondo Union High School District (which at the time also included Manhattan Beach) for what became Mira Costa High School.

Mira Costa has since recognized the history of the land with a plaque dedicated to Uyematsu and his family.

Throughout the years in Manhattan Beach, the camellia has long been a popular flower and shrub. In fact, the camellia had actually been the official flower of Manhattan Beach from 1959 until 2011. But in 2011, at the urging of the Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden, the city changed its official flower to the beach primrose because it is a native flower known for its drought tolerance and uniqueness to the beach.

A dozen years later, in light of the new recognition of the history of the camellia in Manhattan Beach, the Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden recommended the dual designation (keeping the beach primrose as the "official native wildflower," and designating the camellia as the "official historic flower and shrub" of Manhattan Beach).

A Meaningful Symbol?

Councilmember Amy Howorth, who introduced the resolution, said that the motion would be a way to recognize the importance of the camellia to the history of Manhattan Beach and Uyematsu's contributions to the field of horticulture.

"I think that the importance of this is maybe not what happened to the Uyematsu family [in World War II], but the fact that Mr. Uyematsu was a pioneer, an innovator, and a successful horticulturist who we should be proud of," said Howorth. Having two official city flowers, she said, would be a way for the city to say "We honor the past and look forward to the future."

The new naming would have no budgetary implications, she added.

The proposal had drawn both support and opposition. Jacquelyne May, a lifelong Manhattan Beach resident who had first brought the idea to Howorth, said that the designation would be especially meaningful considering the longtime significance of the camellia in the city. "It was such a huge part of this community growing up," she said.

But local historian Gary McAuley downplayed the significance of the camellia. The Uyematsus lived in Montebello, not Manhattan Beach, and had three large farms in Southern California, he said. The camellia was the "flower of the moment," in the 1950s, added McAuley, and many cities - and even the state of Alabama - designated the camellia as their official flower at that time.

Councilmember Steve Napolitano weighed in to say that he was "agnostic" on the flower naming issue in the sense of, "What is the purpose, what is the meaning? Why are we doing this?"

"Is this the best way to recognize what we’re trying to recognize?" asked Napolitano. "We can check this box, but have we achieved anything? Activity doesn’t always equal achievement. Were there other residents of Manhattan Beach that suffered the same fate [as the Uyematsus] and is there a better way to recognize it? There are things that are more significant than naming a flower to me. I just don’t find it that meaningful."

Yet Councilmember David Lesser called the naming "a teaching opportunity" in recognition of the significant role that camellias had played in the city's history.

Similarly, Mayor Pro Tem Joe Franklin said, "I think the camellia can coexist with the beach primrose and we’re all the better for it. It’s not subtracting, it’s adding."

Montgomery expressed his frustration with the tenor of the debate and some of the comments received from the public. He pointed out that there had been more time spent on the flower discussion than on the city budget. "I'm out," he said, abstaining from the vote.

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — The first of two rainstorms dumped a significant amount of rain in Manhattan Beach this week, causing more flooding and mudslides throughout Los Angeles County.

Over the last week, Manhattan Beach got a total of 1.75 inches of rain according to LA Public Works.

So far this season, the peninsula has gotten a total of about 13.73 inches of precipitation beginning on Oct. 1 according to Public Works.

Most of LA County’s coastline saw between one and three inches of rain over the last seven days. The San Fernando Valley saw between two to five inches of rain while downtown LA saw just over two inches.

The Santa Monica Mountains logged the most amount of rainfall in the last seven days in LA County according to NWS with between five to nine inches fallen. According to Public Works, the mountains near Lechuza Beach in Malibu got 8.52 inches

Find out what's happening in Manhattan Beachwith free, real-time updates from Patch.

This recent storm brought a variety of dramatic weather conditions throughout the county, including a major mudslide that completely blocked Malibu Canyon Road which may leave the road closed for several days.

In Rancho Palos Verdes, city officials voted to submit a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom to declare a state of emergency as the rains exacerbate a quick-moving landslide that has caused damage to many structures on the peninsula.

Following the downpour, Los Angeles County beaches were put under a health advisory as high levels of bacteria are expected for at least 72 hours after significant rainfall.

“Bacteria levels can increase significantly during and after rainstorms, as contaminants within the runoff enters the ocean,” according to the LA County Department of Public Health. “Elevated bacteria levels in ocean water may cause illness, especially in children and the elderly.”

A second rainstorm is forecasted to hit the county at the start of next week, with the largest chance of rain being on Monday, according to the National Weather Service. Forecasters said there is uncertainty with this storm system and how much rain will fall.

“At this point, it looks fairly certain that there will be measurable rain in most of the forecast area at some point from late Sunday night through Tuesday morning,” the weather service said.

MANHATTAN BEACH — Four Southern California communities rank among the top 50 richest communities in the country, according to a new report.

Manhattan Beach and Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles County and Ladera Ranch and North Tustin in Orange County landed on the list of "America's Richest Cities" from 24/7 Wall Street. The report looked at communities with populations of at least 25,000 based on median household income and median home value, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey.

Ladera Ranch ranked 29th, Manhattan Beach ranked 30th, Rancho Palos Verdes ranked 43rd, and North Tustin ranked 45th, according to the report by the financial news and opinion website.

Los Altos in Santa Clara County ranked as the richest city in the country, according to the report. But it was far from the only Bay Area city to be included in the list. In fact, the Bay Area was overrepresented among America's wealthiest communities, with 17 cities claiming spots on the list.

Outside the Bay Area, cities tended to be found in large metropolitan areas, particularly Boston, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Dallas.

Interested in local real estate?Subscribe to Patch's new newsletter to be the first to know about open houses, new listings and more.

With a median household income of more than $250,000, Los Altos, a leafy section in western Silicon Valley, is about three times wealthier than the median household in the U.S. The city has a median home value of more than $2 million, which is also over four times greater than the median household price of $410,200 in the U.S.

Los Altos also ranked third for the highest percentage of adults with a bachelor's degree or higher at 85.9 percent, according to the report. The highest in that category is located, naturally, in University Park, Texas, a Dallas suburb that ranked second in the country for median household income.

Here are the Southern California communities that landed on the list. The number in front of the community's name corresponds to its ranking in the overall list. View the full report.
